Dr. Germine Awad.

Dr. Awad is an Associate Professor and Program Chair of the Human
Development, Culture & Learning Sciences Program in the Department of
Educational Psychology.  She has a faculty appointment in the Counseling
Psychology Program. Awad started at the University of Texas at Austin in
2007 and advises several doctoral, master’s, and undergraduate students.
She does research on the correlates of prejudice and discrimination,
identity and acculturation, and body image among women of color. Her
scholarship is characterized by three interrelated areas of inquiry:
prejudice and discrimination, identity and acculturation, and more
recently, body image among women of color. Awad also has written in the
area of multicultural research methodology. The majority of her research is
guided by the questions "What factors lead to discrimination against ethnic
minorities?" and "What impacts perceptions of experienced discrimination?"
The two populations that she has primarily focused on are Arab/Middle
Eastern Americans and African Americans. Although overt discrimination
towards ethnic minorities has decreased over the years, the practice of
more covert, subtle forms of prejudice remains. The events of September 11,
2001, however, reintroduced more explicit forms of prejudice towards
Arab/Middle Eastern Americans, and those perceived to be Muslim,
complicating the dialogue on discrimination in the United States. She is
concerned with how prejudicial attitudes and ideology impact attitudes
towards ethnic minorities generally and within specific domains such as the
workplace and higher education. In addition, she examines how racial/ethnic
identity and acculturation impact ethnic minorities' perception of
discrimination. Most recently, she has expanded my identity and
acculturation research to the study of body image concerns among women of
